In 2016 we renovated the south side of our church, funded with the help of a grant from the 'Listed Places of Worship' fund, as can be seen on here . We have now received a development grant from the 'Heritage Lottery Fund' and are preparing our application for funding towards the renovation of the North side Parapet and gutters, etc., together with the replacement of all of our 177 year old roof. We are also planning to update our upper lounge kitchen area and to replace/update the whole emergency lighting in all our building.
St George's Church Stalybridge is a community of Anglican (Church of England) worshippers.
St George's vicar is the Revd. Philip Brierley. Philip was an Ordained Local Minister at St George's and had been our Curate for many years. He was made Priest-in-Charge in 2013 and was licensed as Vicar on the 11th of September 2016.
We gather for worship on Sundays and Tuesdays during the week. This is usually for the Eucharist (or Holy Communion) that we believe is the central act of Christian worship.
We also meet in order to be of service to others. This takes different forms:
